Attack of the Craft Family

Since I first started my Etsy shop back in 2007 I have been a part of a magnificent group of men and women who all share a love of handmade. Whether they prefer the handmade lifestyle or because they make amazing things themselves, this on-line community may have moved over time to different on-line addresses, but I have come to consider them like my internet family. The most recent form of this group is located at AttackoftheCraft.com, and I talk about "the craft forum" or "my friend ________ from the craft forum" at least once a day, if not more to my significant other, family and coworkers.

The forum has been a great place to meet people from around the world with similar interests, a place to learn new skills, hone old ones, a place for creativity, fun, and even a place to vent your frustrations. There is always someone there to listen and offer advice, whether it be how to insert a zipper into that vintage dress you picked up, or how to prepare vegan meals, or deal with a less-than-friendly neighbor.

It is amazing to be able to have a place where I can go for anything and everything, and I usually do. If you aren't already a member stop by the forum and sign up, poke around a bit, it's a great opportunity to meet new people, learn new things and maybe even build lasting friendships. Stop by and say "Hi" to me while you're there!

Stay Spooky,
Gothcupcake
